My sister Susan is an awesome giver of gifts. Every year she manages to go out of her way to give a personalized, themed, wrapped box of awesome. I look forward to it every year.
And this was one of her ideas. #SusanHaydenHallOfFame.
A few years ago, my wife Catherine and I moved to a new city. For Christmas, she got us a date night kit. Here’s what was in it:
We opened our stocking and found chocolates for dessert, warm-up whiskey bottles for pre-dinner cocktails, and a wide array of personal hygiene items (though I’m not sure what she was trying to say with those).
But the pièce de résistance was a gift certificate to a local restaurant and a movie theater. And that was a great way to get us off the couch and head out in our new town.
If somebody you’re gifting has recently moved to a new area, get on yelp and find a good restaurant in their area for which you can get them a gift certificate. Then, fill out it out with some little, fun, stocking stuffers for a great gift!
Well, I don’t know about the personal hygiene products… 🙂
